The diagrams illustrate how the Queen Mary Hospital changed from 1960 to 2000.
Overall, it is clear that the hospital’s size increased, but there was a decrease in the car park’s capacity over the period of 40 years.
In addition, a new cancer centre and a new nursing school were built between 1960 and 2000.
In 1960, the Queen Mary Hospital was constructed close to a main road and next to a shopping centre.
There was a farmland behind the shopping centre, and a car park was located in the back of the hospital in the same year.
Over the next 20 years, the Queen Mary Hospital was expanded with a new pharmacy and a new cancer centre that were constructed in the area of the old shopping centre.
In addition, the farmland was turned into a nursing school in 1980.
Meanwhile, there was no change in the car park’s capacity in that year.
In 2000, the main hospital building remained unchanged, but the cancer centre was expanded into the area of the old nursing school.
In addition, the old car park was divided into two separate areas, one was used for building a smaller nursing school and the other became a new car park with lower capacity in that year.
